Stay safe and enjoy the drive

THIS time of year is one of the most high-risk times on the roads with many people driving to Christmas parties, end of year celebrations, and heading on holidays for a well-deserved break. Drivers must remember that travelling during holiday periods can be more risky because of increased traffic volumes, congestion, tiredness, people driving in unfamiliar environments, and a higher number of people who are driving under the influence of alcohol. Unfortunately, road accidents and fatalities over the Christmas period are often significantly worse than the rest of the year. Tragically, a percentage of these accidents and fatalities are often preventable. Before you, your family and friends get behind the wheel this festive season, make sure you are ready, and able, to drive. Here are a few tips to help you get there safely. Plan Ahead and Be Flexible. Take the time to plan your trip. Plan which route you are going to take and identify the places you are going to stop and rest along the way. If possible, plan to travel in non-peak traffic and congestion times, and do not plan to drive for more than 2 hours without a break. Take the time to recover at your rest spots. Be Alert to Changes. Check relevant traffic and travel information when you plan your Christmas/Holiday road trip. This may help you plan a route around traffic congestion and road works. Drive to the Conditions. “Conditions” doesn’t just mean the weather conditions. Also take into account the traffic conditions, speed limits, state laws, the children in the car, and your ability to drive. Be Aware of Fatigue. Tiredness is a major cause of fatal accidents on Australian roads. At this time of the year, many people are driving long distances on unfamiliar roads. You may choose to leave in the early hours of

PAGE F

Mornington News 3 December 2019

the morning to avoid traffic, which means you are driving when your body is programmed to sleep. Australia Wide First Aid advises you not to drive when you would otherwise be sleeping. Fatigue will set in, and the only cure is sleep. Identify the Safest Route, not the Fastest. Some routes are safer than others. Take into account hazards such as trees, ditches, narrow shoulders, potholes and dirt roads. These hazards can contribute to the accident risk. Don’t forget to take extra caution on higher risk, rural roads. Before you Travel. Check your vehicle including tyre tread, and pressure, lights, brakes, engine oil, coolant and power steering fluid. Consider getting a car service before you head off for your journey. Check your Trailers and Caravans. Ensure all attachments including chains and plugs are secure. If you are pulling an open trailer, make sure everything is tied down. Be Patient. Holiday driving can be frustrating with busy roads and potentially slower sightseeing travellers. Fellow cars could also be full of impatient children asking “Are We There Yet?”. Be courteous and patient and don’t be provoked by other driver’s aggressive behaviour. Buckle Up Safely. Seat belts save lives. It is as simple as that. If you are driving, it is your responsibility that every passenger is buckled up before you start the engine. Remember, You are sharing the Road. Traffic volumes undoubtedly increase during the holiday season. As it is a time for holidays, there are often larger, slower vehicles in addition to those towing trailers, caravans and camper-vans. Always follow at a safe distance and don’t over take unless it is guaranteed to be safe, preferably using an overtaking lane.

Charity by design A CLASS project by Year 11 Design Technology Fabrics students at Mornington Secondary College will improve life for poverty-stricken children in Africa. Their Little Dresses for Africa project began with donations of pillow cases by parents and other students that the girls crafted into colourful dresses. They will be sent to Africa through the charity and the students will be sent pictures of the girls receiving them. The school’s head of art Lea Gilbert said she came across the idea while looking for recycled fashion ideas. “I thought it would be a great thing to do for charity as well as a fun learning task for the girls,” she said. “We began with a goal of making 50 little dresses but we ended up making 100. They are on display this week at the school’s art gallery and will be posted shortly.”

Drivers let down by tyre slasher Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

THE Mount Martha tyre slasher as captured on a victim’s CCTV. Image: Supplied

A TYRE slasher is costing Mt Martha motorists thousands of dollars in repairs and replacements. Using a box cutter or sharp knife the man has slashed the tyres of 23 cars parked outside their owners’ homes – often slashing more than one tyre on each car. Black and white images captured on a resident’s CCTV camera show a hooded man striding purposely along the street. One victim, who did not want his name used, said he had spent $1800 replacing nine tyres. “My daughter’s had seven tyres slashed and I’ve had two,” he said. “If there’s a next time I’m not even going to bother fixing it. I can’t afford any more tyre bills. The car can just stay out on the street.”

The man said his daughter was going to live elsewhere. “She’s just sick of the whole thing; the police just don’t seem to have the resources to catch this guy.” The senseless crime spree began in early October with the latest slashings occurring late last week. Seven cars were attacked in early October; five between 16 and 18 October; one at the beginning of November; five on 10 November; three on 22 November; and two on 27 November. The slasher – who detectives believe lives in the area – strikes on random nights from just before midnight to around 1am. His “beat” includes Normanby Terrace, Marguerita Avenue, Fern Place, Walara Drive, Ramsay Court, Temple Court, Glenisla Drive, Dickenson Grove and Buxton Court. Detective Senior Constable Alex Montgomery,

of Somerville CIU, said the motive might get a “thrill” from the damage he causes. He sympathised with frustrated owners “getting angry” at having to fork out for repairs, arranging alternative transport to and from work and having to wait for tow trucks to take their cars to repairers. Many find it uneconomical to claim on their car or contents insurance as their excesses are $600-$800 – about the same as the cost of two new tyres. “Most of the tyres are being savagely slashed, making them unrepairable,” Detective Montgomery said. Anyone who has information on the incidents or who has seen someone walking the streets in the area is urged to call Detective Montgomery at Somerville CIU on 59781 300 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Peninsula speed limits to be cut Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au IN a two-year trial the speed limits on 38 shire-managed, high risk sealed rural roads will be reduced to 80kph from mid-December. The state government last week approved appeals from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to cut the speed limits to reduce the soaring road toll. So far this year there have been 14 deaths and more than 100 serious injuries – seven on high risk sealed rural roads – compared to two deaths in 2018. Many of the roads chosen for the trial have a history of crashes and have high-crash-risk factors, including narrow lanes, large trees close to the road, table drains, and poor sight lines. The trial is only for shire-managed high risk sealed rural roads and does not affect any peninsula arterial roads, such as Peninsula Link, Moorooduc Highway or the Western Port Highway. New speed signs, including electronic message boards, will be installed over several weeks from Monday 9 December. “This trial is a great step towards making our roads safer, especially as we tragically are Victoria’s worst municipality for road trauma so far in 2019,” the mayor Cr Sam Hearn said. “Over the past five years, there have been 165 casualty crashes on our rural sealed roads. Any death is far too many.” Cr Hearn said there had been many single-vehicle crashes on peninsula

roads and that travelling 10kph slower could reduce the risk of serious injury or death in a crash by up to 30 per cent. “To obtain a similar outcome by improving road infrastructure through widening roads and installing safety barriers would require the removal of thousands of trees – devastating the natural environment where these roads are situated.” Cr David Gill, who was mayor at the time the shire was lobbying for a trial of lower speed limits, thanked Roads Minister Jaala Pulford for her support. “This is a great outcome that I believe will reduce the number of serious accidents and deaths,” Cr Gill said. He said shire-run surveys “confirm that over 80 per cent of locals support speed reduction on our most dangerous rural roads”. “While there were two deaths here in 2018, there were 73 very serious injuries recorded. We were very lucky not to have had a worse outcome,” Cr Gill said. “I would love for us to have the money to improve road conditions but waiting for the many hundreds of millions of dollars required is just not possible when action is needed now. Cr Gill said tests had shown there was only 30 to 60 seconds to be gained by driving faster on the roads involved. “Council is sincere in wanting to reduce road carnage and does not collect any income from policing of speed limits.” Details: visit mornpen.vic.gov.au/ saferspeeds.

NEWS DESK Speechwriter for shire leaders

Ready to roll: Karen Fankhauser cuts the ribbon to launch the Sailability program. Picture: Yanni

Sailing has no barriers to anyone FORMER Mornington Peninsula Shire Citizen of the Year Karen Fankhauser last week opened the season of Mornington Yacht Club’s Sailability program. As chair of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s disability advisory committee, Ms Fankhauser would have felt right at home in the sailing program which allows people of all ages and abilities to enjoy sailing in a fun and inexpensive way.

The program has been running since 1999 and participants can enjoy the freedom and fun of recreational sailing, while the more competitive strive to develop their racing skills. Participants come from the general community, disability service organisations, and special developmental schools. Some have no disabilities, others are elderly or have some physical impairment, while others have physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities.

They sail mid-week and on Sunday mornings. The first focuses on groups from disability service organisations, although individuals can still join in. It runs 10am-2pm Wednesdays and Fridays except for school holidays and the months of June through September depending on the weather. The mid-week program also runs one-off days for select client groups, by arrangement. The Sunday program has a family

focus and is open to everyone. It runs 10am-1pm on the first and third Sundays from late October to the end of April. Bookings are essential. Budding sailors come from all over the Mornington Peninsula and surrounding municipalities. Full wheelchair access is available, and there’s even a hoist to lower participants into boats. They can sail solo in Hansa dinghies or be accompanied by a volunteer co-sailor.

A SPEECHWRITER has been hired to “provide help” to Mornington Peninsula Shire’s 11 councillors and its CEO John Baker. Christina (Tina) McGuffie was appointed in August “to support our councillors by providing help with the high demand for speeches which has always been a function of the shire’s communications team”, communications and events executive manage Randal Mathieson said. “The peninsula has a very active population and our councillors are highly engaged with their local communities,” Mr Mathieson said. “Each month we receive dozens of requests from community groups for councillors to speak at events, launches and activities throughout the shire. “The speechwriter is part of our communications team and, among other duties, prepares speeches and event briefing notes for all 11 councillors plus the CEO.” Mr Mathieson said the City of Melbourne has two designated speechwriters - one for the Lord Mayor and one for councillors and the CEO. Ms McGuffie has previously worked as a media advisor to Flinders MP, Greg Hunt. “I do my own speeches, but it was good to have had help with background information,” Cr David Gill, who was mayor when the shire decided to hire a speechwriter, said. He said it was not often necessary to make “formal” speeches in local government “because it’s more often like having a chat as [councillors] know a lot about what we do”.

Tree lopper fined for dumping waste A MORNINGTON tree-lopping business has been fined almost $7000 for illegally dumping truckloads of mulch and garden waste. This comes after Mornington Peninsula and Frankston councils joined forces to prosecute the company at both the Dromana and Frankston magistrates’ courts. Tree pruning and removal business Trim Up Tree Service, described as a “serial rubbish dumper”, was found guilty of dumping the waste at Mount Martha and Langwarrin. A Mornington Peninsula Shire news release said the shire had a strong zero-tolerance approach to illegally dumped rubbish, successfully prosecuting 12 offenders this year resulting in fines of $12,000. “Illegal dumping is a crime and can incur onthe-spot fines,” the release stated. “The councils will investigate all reported cases and prosecute dumpers with penalties of up to $9500.” The council understands Trim Up Tree Ser-

vice was paid by residents to clear their properties ahead of summer, so it was seeking to profit through income and by avoiding tip fees. The shire is urging residents to prepare their properties in the lead-up to summer and during declared fire danger periods to reduce the number of potential fire hazards. The shire’s fire management contractors’ list is available at: mornpen.vic.gov.au/fireprevention Increased efforts to deter and penalise rubbish dumping on the peninsula include patrolling dumping hot spots; CCTV and covert; gates, fences and bollards to prevent access to parks and reserves; investigation of all dumping incidents; issuing infringement notices and referring serious matters for prosecution; and a Dob-in-a-Dumper campaign. Report dumpers at mornpen.vic.gov.au/dobinadumper or via the Snap Send Solve app. Or, call Mornington Peninsula Shire Customer Service 1300 850 600.

No-plastic campaigners’ war on waste THE Plastic Free Mt Martha campaign has wide backing, gaining support from Beach Patrol, Balcombe Estuary Reserves Group, Boomerang Alliance, Boomerang Bags, Dolphin Research Institute, Mt Martha Life Saving Club and RAW Travel. Organisers last week launched a trial of the national program at Mt Martha, with Kellie Lindsay, Julie Zammitt, Cathy Mitchell, Amy Westnedge, Birte Moliere, Jayne D’Arcy and

Jess Schubert-Hoban taking to the sand to collect waste coffee cups, straws, food containers and cigarette butts. The most common “culprits” include takeaway food containers and cups, plastic packaging and cigarette butts. “When littered or discarded into landfill, plastic can take 1000s of years to decompose, if at all,” spokesperson Birte Moliere said.

Walk to help young have a home EVERY walk has a start and a finish. On Friday 22 November Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Sam, Hearn joined the CEO of Kids Under Cover Jo Swift in taking the first steps of a four-day walk to raise money to prevent young people being homeless. Kids Under Cover has been running for 30 years, although it was the first time its fundraising walk has started in Rosebud. “We hope it’s the first of many,” Cr Hearn said, of the walk which ended in Richmond on Monday. “The work Kids Under Cover has done in this region and the state

broadly has had an enormous impact. It’s so important to keep youth at risk of homelessness connected to the support networks in their community.” Cr Hearn said the organisation’s provision of studio accommodation and education scholarships “is a solid, proven method of breaking the cycle”. Organisers hoped to raise $125,000 through the 75km walk. “If we reach our goal, the money raised will build two new studios and put a roof over two young people’s heads to keep them off the streets,” Ms Swift said. Founded in 1989, Kids Under Cover

says it is the only Australian charity that delivers both accommodation and educational support for young people aged 12 to 25 who are at risk of homelessness or are already homeless. The studio program at the heart of Kids Under Cover’s work provides one or two-bedroom studios with bathrooms built from recyclable materials in the backyard of a family or carer’s home. The model ensures that young people have access to their networks, but also provides a personal and stable space for them to live in. For details go to www.kuc.org.au.

With Stephen Taylor

Culpable driving charges MAJOR Collision Investigation Unit detectives last week charged a man with culpable driving causing death following a fatal collision at Somerville on 25 February. The 22-year-old Warneet man appeared before the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, Tuesday 26 November, and was bailed to appear at the same court on 24 January. Detectives will allege the man’s utility collided with a motorcycle on Tyabb-Tooradin Road about 4.25pm. The rider, aged in his 50s, died at the scene.

Car theft arrests DETECTIVES have rounded up a group of men which allegedly stole five cars and items from other cars in a series of raids in Mt Eliza and Mt Martha, 11-16 November. Detective Senior Constable Andrew Hodgson, of Somerville CIU, said the males aged 16-21 came from Frankston, Langwarrin and Cranbourne. They were charged with theft of and theft from cars. Two faced Frankston Magistrates’ Court last week and were remanded to reappear at a later date. Two will appear at a children’s court and two at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Speed count A ROSEBUD man caught driving at an alleged 111kph, pictured, in a 60 zone near the base of Arthurs Seat had his car impounded and will be summonsed to appear in court for driving at a dangerous speed. The 23-year-old, apprehended at 7.30pm, Sunday 24 November, faces a 12-month driving ban.

Somerville Highway Patrol officers also detected a P2 probationary licence holder doing an alleged 141kph on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at McCrae on the same day. The 21-year-old man, of Yarraville, told police he was “on a car cruise and was trying to catch up with mates” about 7pm. He was issued a $620 fine and will lose his licence for six months.

Schoolies’ watch POLICE will be out in force in “significantly increased numbers” this week keeping an eye on schoolies. Learning from the mayhem of previous years, their operations will focus on “preventing and addressing unsociable behaviour”. “Have a good time, but look after yourselves, be mindful of noise and act in a mature and respectful manner towards residents and traders,” police said.

Still Game will be singing all the hits from 7.30pm

FRESH from rescuing a swimmer in danger under Frankston pier, Senior Constable Julie Morris is planning a pier-to-pier swim from the Frankston to Mornington. The endurance swim in January will raise money for the Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation. To be called #piertopierforourpeers the swim also has the nickname “10k for 10k”. Senior Constable Morris, a member of Frankston police and a Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor, led a distressed Corey Wood to safety from under Frankston pier on a hot and windy Thursday 22 November (“Police to the rescue in pier drama” The News 26/11/19). An accomplished long-distance swimmer, Senior Constable Morris had to fight against waves that were topping the pier and a strong undercurrent. The pair was reunited later with Senior Constable Morris getting a thank-you hug from Corey Wood for her role. Senior Constable Morris will swim the 10 kilometres from Frankston to Mornington with colleague Sergeant Daniel Burton on 8 January in the hope of raising $10,000 for police and emergency service members suffering from PTSD and work-related mental health conditions. She said police suicide was a constant concern. “We’ve lost five, and the most recent was last week,” she said. The keen triathletes have been swimming together for three years and share a passion for long-distance swimming throughout the year. They are keeping the swim direction flexible depending on the weather. “Ideally we want the wind and tides behind us,” Senior Constable Morris said. “We will hug the coastline by swimming from pole to pole rather than going direct. A support crew in kayaks will have food and drink and a spare wetsuit just in case one of us gets into trouble. It will be a challenge but, no matter how hard it is, if we can lean on one another and get there it will be worth it – especially if we the raise the $10,000.”

Check ‘clean beach’ report before going in for a swim THE Environment Protection Authority Victoria says beachgoers should check its forecasting service or sign up for its SMS service before going to the beach on the Mornington Peninsula this summer. EPA chief environmental scientist Dr Andrea Hinwood said the Beach Report, which came on stream last Sunday (1 December), provided information about water quality in Port Phillip. The service ends on the Labour Day weekend next March. The water quality report comes two weeks after South East Water warned that sewage spills into Tanto Creek may have polluted beaches south of Mills Beach, Mornington (“Beach warning” The News 26/11/19). “Our beaches are great places to visit, but they are also complex ecosystems. In certain conditions they can be home to types of bacteria that pose health risks to swimmers,” Dr Hinwood said. Dr Hinwood said more stringent water quality standards, being used for the first time this summer, would help ensure that EPA’s Beach Report was more protective of health. “The new standards take a precautionary approach to protecting public health. They rely on scientific studies linking microbial levels in water with the actual risk of illness,” she said.

“This is good news for swimmers and means they can have an even higher degree of confidence in our forecasts.” A common swimmer-related illness is gastroenteritis. Children, the elderly and people with vulnerable immune systems are at the highest risk of getting ill from water-borne germs. EPA’s forecasts for 36 Port Phillip beaches are published on the Yarra & Bay website, as well as on Twitter by following @EPA_Victoria. On the website people can also sign up to EPA’s free SMS service to receive a text when the water at selected beaches is forecast to have poor quality. Dr Hinwood said people should see a doctor if they have a suspected illness after swimming. The new water quality standards have been introduced as a result of the State Environment Protection Policy (SEPP) (Waters), which came into effect in 2018. Last year, Santa Casa (Queenscliff) beach was ranked the highest for good water quality in Port Phillip. Rosebud and Portsea were the only peninsula beaches included in the EPA’s top 10 cleanest beaches for last summer. Keith Platt

Step carefully: Bluebottles littered Sorrento back beach last week. Picture: Gary Sissons

Ocean nomad arrives with a sting ARMADAS of the stinging bluebottle jellyfish (Physalia utriculus) have been washed up on the Mornington Peninsula’s ocean beaches and may soon be entering Port Phillip. The bluebottle, or Pacific manof-war, is an occasional visitor to Victorian beaches but more common in Sydney and further north. The wind and currents determine its journey before being brought ashiore by incoming tides. Wikipedia says bluebottles differ from other jellyfish in several ways.

The gas-filled float supports a number of specialised tentacles, which are actually members of a complicated colony. The individual members, or zooids, cooperate to form what looks like one jellyfish. Some zooids are specialised for stinging and capturing tiny fish and other marine animals, some eat the prey, while others reproduce. Up to 30,000 stings each year are reported along the east coast of Australia from Physalia with about 500 reported from Western Australia and

South Australia. Treat a bluebottle sting by washing off remaining tentacles with saltwater and then rinsing the affected area with seawater to remove any invisible stinging cells. Immerse the stung area in hot water as the heat kills the protein in the venom. Studies have shown that 40 degrees Celsius will produce relief after 10 minutes. If the symptoms persist or for stings that cover a particularly large area, or across the throat and face, call 000.

‘Raffa’ makes an early arrival Hi mum: Raffael with Nancy. Picture: Supplied

A taste of European style in Mornington

RAFFAEL Gurney was an early, but welcome, arrival at Frankston Hospital on Friday 13 September. Far from being bad luck, the very premature bub announced his arrival at 31-and-a-half weeks instead of the usual 40 weeks. “It was all a bit of a shock as I wasn’t due until 10 November,” recalls mum Nancy Newton, of Mornington. “I went into early labour and was taken to hospital. They put me on the monitor and found Raffael’s heart rate was abnormal, so I ended up having an emergency C-section.” Weighing just 1.6kg Raffael (nicknamed Raffy) then spent five weeks in the special care nursery. Nancy and dad James Gurney are thrilled to have Raffael, their first baby, home with them. They say he is “going well and continuing to put

on lots of weight” and at 3.6kg has more than doubled his birth weight. “The care in the nursery was amazing,” Ms Newton said. “It is also nice and comfortable and it feels homey there. “The unexpected arrival was difficult but the staff made it so much easier.” Special care nursery manager Alison Conroy-Joyce said: “The special care nursery at Frankston Hospital cares for sick and premature babies who require specialised care and observation. “Some of the complications premature babies can experience include difficulty breathing, regulating their temperature, feeding and putting on weight. Our doctors and nurses care for these babies and their families until they no longer need medical support and are well enough to go home.”

THE style and flare of European fashion has arrived in Mornington. Opening Friday the 6th of December, Marinella Fashion Boutique is a treasure trove of beautiful clothing and accessories made form the highest quality fabrics and materials, imported directly from Italy and France. Having worked in the fashion industry for over 25 years, owner Marina Mariani believes fashion is a game and its important to find your own individual style and to play. “Nothing makes me happier then seeing a beautifully-styled, confident woman walking down the street and I hope that’s the experience our customers take away form visiting my boutique”.

bit of funk to them, embodying the famous spirit of the Mediterranean and Western Europe.

Containers form a ‘line in the sand’ BOOMERANG Alliance members have their Christmas wishes worked out: All they want from Premier Daniel Andrews is a container deposit scheme in Victoria. They say the scheme would encourage people to collect used containers and limit the number going to landfill.

Last week members of Mount Martha Beach Patrol and Mount Martha Lifesaving Club used 1000 empty drink bottles collected at a recent clean up event to spread the message. A petition for a container deposit scheme is being organised by boomerangalliance.org.au/vic

Call for waste water system check WITH more than 25,000 properties on the Mornington Peninsula relying on septic tanks to process their waste water it’s no wonder there are concerns about pollutants entering ground water and waterways. Many of these systems were approved decades ago and are long past their use-by dates. The mayor Cr Sam Hearn said it was important to ensure the health of septic tanks systems year round. “A poorly kept septic system is a health risk to our family, friends, waterways and the wider community,” he said. “This also applies to wastewater systems at

commercial premises which also contribute to contaminating local waterways.” Other sources of waste water are industrial, commercial or agricultural activities, surface runoff or stormwater and sewerage. The shire encourages annual health checks on septic systems, particularly before busy holiday periods. “We want to work with our community to help manage and maintain systems together, to protect and ensure the distinctive and beautiful character of the peninsula,” Cr Hearn said.

Peaceful street march against violence SEVERAL hundred people marched through Hastings last Friday (22 November) to show their disgust of family violence. The fifth Taking a Stand Against Family Violence march organised by Westernport Respectful Relationships Group was formerly known as the White Ribbon March. The annual march raises community awareness about family violence and “helps the community to unite and take a stand together”, Cr Kate Roper said. Speakers at the march included Cr Roper, Hastings Senior Sergeant Andrew Horscroft, family violence survivor Melissa, who shared her own story, and shire staff member Mandy Roche, who gave an overview of the shire’s Gender Equality Strategy. “Violence against women and their children is a serious and widespread problem in Australia, with enormous individual and community impacts and social costs,” Cr Roper said. “I urge anyone who doubts that to at the statistics. A shocking one in four women aged over 15 has experienced physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner. “Here on the Mornington Peninsula, police reported 1867 incidents of family violence in 2017-18. “But analysis has shown that only 25 per cent of referrals to family violence services in the southern metro region come from police; we can infer that many, many more incidents of family violence occur than are recorded in police statistics.” Cr Roper said the shire had been reviewing its policies and “looking at

Reinforcing the message that Mornington Peninsula Shire is concerned at the level of family violence, the mayor Cr Sam Hearn, left, and former mayor Cr David Gill help, right, help hold the banner during this year’s Taking a Stand Against Family Violence march at Hastings. Picture: Gary Sissons what it can do to improve the situation”. “We have an obligation to do this under state legislation: preventing violence and injury is one of the priority areas in the Victorian public health and wellbeing plan. “It was also a recommendation of the Family Violence Royal Commission that local governments report on the measures they propose to take to reduce family violence and respond to

the needs of victims. “We know that one of the key drivers of violence against women and their children is gender inequality – which is the process by which people are treated differently and disadvantageously, under similar circumstances, on the basis of their gender. “We also know that there is much work that we can do to help change the attitudes and ways of thinking that

enable family violence to take place. This can include challenging the condoning of violence against women; promoting women’s independence and decision-making; challenging gender stereotypes and roles, and strengthening positive, equal and respectful relationships.” The Westernport Respectful Relationships Committee includes Good Shepherd, DHHS, Victoria Police,

Family Life, Hastings Community House, Westernport Chamber of Commerce and shire staff. The Westernport Respectful Relationships Committee is auspiced by Wallaroo Community House. After the march guests were invited to take part in the creation of rock art with the Balee Aboriginal Group. Stephen Taylor

ON THE COVER

HISTORIC EDWARDIAN SPLENDOUR WITH MODERN CONVENIENCES OCCUPYING a special place in the history of Rosebud – the property was the first home to be listed in the local telephone directory - Woyna House was constructed in 1912 and is set on a superb 1087 square metre just moments to the Capel Sound foreshore. At first sight you are treated to a charming weatherboard façade and well-landscaped grounds, alive with colour from rose bushes, maples and magnolias, that surround the authentic period home, and upon entering you feel first-hand the glorious space that only genuine 3.65 metre (12 feet) ceilings can produce. Complete with stained leadlight windows, solid Baltic timber floors and wrap around verandah, buyers are quickly transported back to a time when homes were built to last. Woyna House has had an extensive makeover; there have been major improvements to the kitchen, dining area and lounge and structural work including stumping, electrical wiring and plumbing has all been completed, so buyers can certainly purchase with some assurances here. The modern kitchen is tucked into a sunny corner of the home with a wonderful view of the gardens available through a servery window. Gleaming stone countertops and crisp white cabinets give the space a clean, inviting ambience and appliances include a dishwasher and a stainless-steel oven with gas cook top. There is adjoining dining area and family room with gas log fire that opens to the verandah through a set of French doors. A handsome formal lounge could possibly serve as a large guest bedroom in addition to the stunning master bedroom which showcases beautiful leadlight doors and a bay window. Two more bedrooms each have their own distinct style, and all share the bathroom with original claw-foot bath. Blending Edwardian elegance with contemporary 21st century trends, this charming home is a fantastic opportunity to own a property of distinction in a sought-after beachside location.n

LOVE THIS HOME

‘BITTERN COTTAGE’ STEEPED in the history of Western Port and well-positioned with main road frontage, ideal for a business or tourism venture, Bittern Cottage has been a landmark in the area since first built in 1915. More recent incarnations have seen the cottage operate as a French provincial restaurant with quaint lounge and dining areas in addition to a full kitchen. Pleasingly, the Victorian-style home retains many original features with open fireplaces to grand formal rooms and a delightful front verandah overlooking colourful, traditional gardens. The property has four bedrooms to the main residence plus there is a partially self-contained one bedroom studio. Other features include an outdoor fireplace in the appealing front courtyard, there is quirky wine cellar and the 1616 square metre block offers plenty of parking. With some maintenance and imagination this property could be brought back to its original charm with options to take advantage of the busy location and establish a new business venture (STCA) or retain as a unique family home.n

Young encouraged to ‘rattle chains’ of old climate deniers I am appalled at elderly climate deniers who insist on verbally attacking a young woman who has formed an opinion (and cannot defend herself) that differs from theirs on climate change (“Reliable government” Letters 26/11/19). How archaic, how elderly. I Wonder if they would attack Sir David Attenborough with the same vigour? It’s not the left, but the right, that live in a time bubble because they are always continuing to rake up things from the past to compare. The left is concerned about the present, not the past, it’s never nice, whatever era, to lose any lives. There are filmed recordings of ice cap melts, glaciers disappearing or melting at an alarming rate, reduction of Arctic sea ice, permafrost thawing, islands being inundated and coral dieoff to name a few. If those on the right don’t believe that film footage, then perhaps they don’t believe the film showing man’s landing on the moon. The writer said he would rather believe the Morrison government and its advisors that are “factoring in economics and supply above hysteria”. Well, we have a prime minister who hugs coal and, if you want hysterics, listen how shrill he gets defending the coal mining industry. Meanwhile, Trade Minister Simon Birmingham is fighting the European Union on climate demands because the EU wants Australia to adopt climate change targets. Energy Minister Angus Taylor has allowed the Murray/Darling river system to dry up while he pursues other interests. We are selling coal to the main big polluters, China and India. As a 77-year-old, I say well done to [16-year-old Swedish environmental activist] Greta Thunberg and all the kids that are concerned about their future. Go out there and rattle a few more chains of some of those on the right. John Cain, McCrae

Democratic rights Paul Mercurio’s recollection of the survey I conducted with him in June 2018 is distinctly different from mine (“Restrictions exist” Letters 19/11/19). His speculation about what I knew and my preparation before the survey is inaccurate, as are his assertions that my “original catch cry” was “no expansion” and that I have been “continually] fear mongering”. Prior to the survey, I read the airfield permit. The 1972 permit condition 5 essentially makes it illegal for jet aircraft to operate from Tyabb. My survey, therefore, did not cover jet aircraft. If someone raised the issue, I told them jet aircraft were prohibited. The survey question sheets are beside me as I write: there is no question on jets. I did not ask Mr Mercurio (or anyone) whether he would be happy with a 24-hour passenger service, seven days a week. I did briefly discuss “scheduled operations” in the much broader question 6 about possible future longer or additional runways (boundary expansion). In this question I specifically said “I’m not saying they intend to do scheduled services at Tyabb”.

“No expansion” was not my original catch cry. Survey question 7 (Any other general comments about the airfield?) highlighted two major community issues: no airfield expansion (in external boundaries or aircraft activity) and limiting/reducing noise. Hence the “No expansion” and “Limit noise” signs around Tyabb. I have not engaged in “fear mongering”. I have been informing residents of the status of legal protections against increased aircraft traffic and increased aircraft noise at Tyabb Airfield. I have been inviting residents to express an opinion on what they want for the future. As someone who served Australia for 38 years in the defence force, and as a Tyabb resident, I will continue to promote these fundamental democratic rights to be informed and to seek change. Brewis Atkinson, Tyabb

Upon reflection Regarding [former mayor Cr] David Gill’s reflections [on his term as mayor]: He came, he saw, he went (“Shire tops in election promises — Gill” The News 27/11/19). Fred Wild, Rye

Liberty’s fuel price I noticed that a new petrol outlet, Liberty, is soon to open in Point Nepean Road, Rosebud and thought that at last there would be true competition on the Mornington Peninsula from an independent fuel retailer. However, a search on the internet reveals the following: about two years ago Shell Australia sold its Corio oil refinery, together with various service stations, to a sister company Viva Petroleum. While the Shell brand is being used by Viva. In January this year Liberty Petroleum was sold to Viva Petroleum so that Liberty is no longer a true independent company. Sadly, Liberty will probably fall into line price wise with the other major fuel suppliers on the peninsula. At best we may see only a few cents difference in the price of fuel. But, at least it is better than nothing. Bruce Jordan, Capel Sound

Call to cool it I am concerned for Michael G Free; he should take a deep breath and calm down a bit, or he might pop a valve or two (“No ‘emergency’” Letters 27/11/19). I think he’s becoming ever more shrill in his rants about a Scandinavian school girl’s quite pertinent questions about the world’s extreme right-inspired politics, that will lead to human extinction for the sake of the ponzi scheme of never ending economic growth. If he looks more critically at his latest list of disasters he may realise that ever since Australia’s first nation dispossession, our continent’s environment has been going down the gurgler with ever increasing speed. I hope he’ll take my advice and calms down so he may live long enough to experience some of the more severe effects of the loony right’s

MORNINGTON reader Douglas Iles saw the picture opportunities of having a clear line of sight along Swanston Street, Melbourne towards St Kilda Road during last Thursday’s (28 November) 10am-2pm tram stoppage. “The day had its benefits,” he said. climate destroying policies. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Decline of coal Eighty seven per cent of Australia’s coal exports are to Japan, China, South Korea and India. China’s renewable energy sector is growing faster than fossil fuels and nuclear power; the share of electricity from coal will decline 30-50 per cent, and the remaining 5-70 per cent will come from oil and natural gas. India plans to cut coal imports by a third, Japan’s coal use is set to fall from a decade high of over 80 per cent to 60 per cent. South Korea targets 30-35 per cent renewable energy up from 8 per cent, and will “drastically” reduce coal-fired power generation by banning new coal plants and retiring old ones and is raising the coal import tax a further 28 per cent. Australia’s thermal coal export earnings will slump as a result of a 30 per cent decline in coal prices due to oversupply. This assumes that tonnes exported will not decline. A report by three energy (not climate) experts finds that record reductions in coal use could signal the beginning of the end of the industry. The mining industry is on the brink of an “extraordinary transformation” driven by technology including robotics and automation, according to mining executives from around the globe. Australians believe coal mining accounts for 12.5 per cent of Australia’s economic output and employs 9.3 per cent of its workforce. In reality, coal mining employs only 0.4 per cent of workers (37,800) and is only 2.2 per cent of Australia’s GDP. You do not have to be an astrophysics engineer to see where this is leading, and that continuing to prop up an industry on its last legs does not work. It is time for this government to pull its head out and start “investing” in industries of the future that will create jobs. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Bring back industry It is fortunate that Australia’s industrial might has been all but destroyed, because if we still had the huge, powerful and wealth-generating industrial might that existed up to the 1980s or so, we would have needed all of our electricity generators and then some. Our essential electricity supply is now a market place, run by economists, not engineers, with our remaining generators due to expire and be replaced by a very loose scattering of unreliable, part time, inadequate, shockingly-expensive, renewable ventures. We can never ever regain our industrial might until we build new generators, coal or nuclear. Be aware that China’s wealth and super power status is derived from its recently developed massive industrial base, part of which Australia gifted to them. Our planet is once again entering a warming cycle with surface temperatures of our milesdeep oceans rising slightly and releasing stored carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Some weather patterns, caused by ocean temperatures, are changing unpredictably, producing a whole raft of new weather phenomena. The El Nino twins are dormant in Australia this year, supplanted by the Indian Ocean Dipole. In other parts of the world, aberrant weather patterns are happening, hot and cold. The misguided zealots, many of who have already acknowledged reality and greatly modified their simplistic climate theory, still insist on stopping all carbon emissions, thus ensuring a banana republic future for their grandchildren or themselves. Australia had better shake a leg and get on with some industrial reconstruction. Our grandchildren deserve the same sort of future and wonderful opportunities as us oldies already have had, when Australia was great and powerful. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Start on Latrobe Valley hydrogen supply Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au WORK has officially started on a plant in the Latrobe Valley to extract hydrogen gas from brown coal which will be tuned into liquid at Hastings for export to Japan. The liquification plant now being built in Bayview Road, Hastings is scheduled to be completed by June 2020. Construction of a ship to transport the liquefied hydrogen is underway in Kobe, Japan. The plant to extract hydrogen gas from brown coal is being built at the AGL Loy Yang mine The state and federal governments have each contributed $50 million towards the $400m Japan–Australia Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain Pilot Project being undertaken by a consortium of Japanese companies. The consortium partners include Kawasaki Heavy Industries, J-Power, Iwatani Corporation, Marubeni Corporation, Sumitomo Corporation and AGL, which is already being opposed for its plans to import liquified natural gas (LNG) through a floating terminal at Crib Point. In its first stages, the hydrogen-from-brown coal trial is expected to involve the gas being delivered by road to the Hastings plant about once a month in high pressure tube trailers. “As the amount of hydrogen being produced for the pilot is very small - one to three tonnes the amount of CO2 is expected to be 100 tonnes. This is equivalent to the annual output of approximately 20 cars,” senior consultant - engagement, communication and communities, Victoria Louisa McPhee told The News. “All of these waste materials will be contained on-site as part of the plant design, treated on-site or disposed of via accredited disposal pathways.” The project has been criticised over the amount of CO2 released when extracting hydrogen from brown coal which, if given the go ahead for full production, would require the carbon to be cap-

WORK is well underway on the hydrogen gas to liquid plant in Bayview Road, Hastings, a key link in the year-long trial to produce hydroen from brown coal. Picture: Gary Sissons tured and stored underground. The Australia Institute late last month said the federal government was basing its predictions for the export of hydrogen on flawed data. A report published by the think tank said official figures produced for Japan and South Korea “vastly exceeded” the figures being used by the Australian government. The hydrogen produced in the Latrobe Valley is destined to be used in Japan to fuel cell electric vehicles and power generation. The one-year trial is designed to demonstrate “brown coal gasification and gas-refining, hydrogen liquefaction, shipbuilding and operation of a

specialised liquefied hydrogen carrier, and identification of a future commercialisation pathway for the commercial phase of a hydrogen supply chain”. In November 2018 the consortium said described extracting hydrogen for fuel from brown coal as “an exciting opportunity for Victoria and Japan to partner for mutual benefit and to work towards creating an environmentally sustainable solution which will put Australia on the frontline of the changing face of clean energy provision here and around the world” (“Hydrogen plant to get all clear” The News 7/11/18). However, Mornington Peninsula Shire was not so complimentary, with the then mayor Cr Bryan

Payne saying the government’s takeover of planning powers for the hydrogen project “sadly reflects on the state of planning in Victoria and raises issues of where public health and safety responsibility fits with government at both the federal and state level”. In July this year, Cr Payne’s successor as mayor, Cr David Gill, boycotted a turning of the sod ceremony at the Hastings gas to liquid plant (“Digging in for hydrogen at Hastings” The News 22/7/19). “What benefit does the public in Australia get from Japanese motorists having clean energy while we keep the carbon that’s left behind,” Cr Gill said.

Finally, shoulder pain relief YOU’VE just got back to swimming, tennis, or enjoying working on the tools around the house, and your shoulder starts to hurt when you lift your arm above your head. Your sleep is interrupted when you lie on your shoulder, and it just aches when driving or sitting in front of the computer. This can be difficult to treat, because one of the main causes is poor shoulder posture. Often people want a quick solution, but without improving posture, clearing the pain can be difficult. Poor posture can place pressure on the rotator cuff tendons, and the shoulder joint capsule (ligaments supporting the shoulder), causing a frozen shoulder. At Back In Motion Balnarring we have several solutions for this problem. Firstly, we need to teach optimal posture. We do this with exercises and taping to guide the correct shoulder blade posture. We can also prescribe exercises to help reduce tension on the inflamed tendons. Apart from the above solutions, there is a new healing technology that is making a profound difference for shoulder pain sufferers. Practice owner, Paul Rowson says “Shockwave Therapy is often useful, because the rotator cuff tendons are a connective tissue, not a muscle. It puts a significant shockwave through the tissues you apply it to.

It is a pressure wave which brings blood flow to the area. Tendons and connective tissue do not have much blood supply and can take a long time to heal. Shockwave artificially stimulates the healing of the tendon.” Shockwave therapy can also be used on Achilles tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, golfer’s and tennis elbow, Frozen Shoulder, and Rotator Cuff tendon problems, and is usually most effective on long term chronic problems, rather than acute injuries. Shockwave is not the first line of treatment for injured patients. Physiotherapy and graded exercise are more likely in the first instance. But for more stubborn conditions, shockwave has shown good results. “The evidence at the moment suggests between three to five treatments are required, but most people should see an improvement within three sessions. It has a success rate up to 90%” Paul says. The Shockwave therapy is administered for a three-minute period to the affected area during consecutive weekly appointments. “It is a bit of an uncomfortable sensation” Paul says, “like most physio handson treatments with a little discomfort during the treatment.” Paul says, “After each session, most people get a significant reduction of pain and symptoms. Long term it stimulates healing,

short term it reduces pain. The best thing is, the effects are long lasting. It stops a lot of people having more invasive things like surgery or injections. The treatment is considered safe, but can produce skin reddening or bruising, short term

pain, and cannot be used on people taking blood thinning medications or with bleeding disorders.“ “It is important to know that Shockwave has a long-term effect. Most of the time you have good outcomes, without having to have further treatments.”

Shockwave is now available in Balnarring. Call in and speak to the physios to see if it suits your condition. Back in Motion is at 6/2-8 Russell Street, Balnarring. Phone 03 5983 1021.www.backinmotion.com.au/ balnarring

He remembers the Canadian trip, explaining clearly how to use Meridian Passage when navigating without GPS. Eight years ago, Philip’s life took a turn for the worse. He had a stroke, followed by two lots of surgery for a brain tumour. This has left him with problems with mobility, balance and memory. At the same his health failed, he suffered a relationship breakdown and lost most of his life savings. He had worked as an engineer and was financially well off, but the illness forced him into early retirement. With just a few big changes to wellbeing and financial circumstances, it’s easy to see how anyone can find themselves in need of assistance. “I know about nuclear physics, but it doesn’t help me with the weekly shopping,” Philip smiles. Because of his high care needs, his Brotherhood of St Laurence Aged Care case manager, Rachel, helped him move from a Level 2 Home Care Package to a Level 4 one. This allows him to draw on more intensive support. He now gets help with activities of daily living including cooking, gardening, shopping and cleaning, and he has access to physiotherapy, so he can work on improving his mobility. “Rachel is my heroine. She is a very capable person who doesn’t forget a thing,” says Philip. Along the way, Philip has also ended up in rental accommodation which he can’t afford, and a case manager has recently found him more affordable housing.

“If I didn’t have the Brotherhood I would be living under a bridge. I couldn’t live without them,” says Phillip.

Peninsula Eye Centre upgrade - bringing world-class ophthalmic care to the Mornington Peninsula WHEN world-renowned ophthalmologist, Dr Rick Wolfe, finished medical school, he deliberately bucked the trend of his fellow graduates who were all chasing city jobs and took up a position as a graduate ophthalmologist in Mt Eliza. He had a fondness for the Mornington Peninsula, having holidayed at Safety Beach as a child, however he also suspected that the region would also be a great place to one day start his own practice. Thirty years later, and the Peninsula Eye Centre is widely recognised as one of Australia’s leading ophthalmic clinics. Conveniently situated next to Beleura Private Hospital, Peninsula Eye Centre performs over 14,000 services each year, ranging from comprehensive ophthalmic examinations, tests and treatments through to cataract and retinal surgery. Dr Rick Wolfe is joined by six associate ophthalmologists and a team of highly experienced orthoptists with extensive experience across all ophthalmic conditions such as cataracts, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma and macular degeneration. In response to growing demand for ophthalmic care on the Mornington Peninsula, Peninsula Eye Centre

has recently undergone a significant renovation. The upgrade consolidates Peninsula Eye Centre’s state of the art technology and strengthens Dr Wolfe and his team’s capacity to continue to offer sophisticated treatments to Peninsula residents in their own back yard. “Too often, regional and rural patients are forced to travel to undergo basic medical procedures. One of the things I am most proud of is the world-class treatments and care we offer at Peninsula Eye Centre, and at the adjoining Beleura Private Hospital, meaning local residents, particularly the elderly, don’t have to travel to Melbourne for common eye conditions such as cataracts.” Having treated generations of Mornington Peninsula residents, Peninsula Eye Centre is also an active supporter of the community. “A key part to our ongoing success at Peninsula Eye Centre is the wonderful sense of community that surrounds us’” says Dr Wolfe. “The Peninsula just goes from strength to strength, with the Arts and Culture scene an especially exciting area, which is why we are delighted to support local events such as the Mornington Winter Music Festival and the Mornington Art Show so that we can play a small part in helping

The Team at Peninsula Eye Centre these fantastic events continue to flourish”. The newly upgraded Peninsula Eye Centre was officially opened by Federal Minister for Health and

Member for Flinders, the Hon. Greg Hunt MP, on November 12, 2019. Peninsula Eye Centre is open Monday-Friday between 8:00 am5:00 pm.

Regain your smile and confidence ARE you missing several, or all, of your teeth? You may be one of the many Australians who struggle to enjoy their food, speak naturally and smile with confidence? You’re not alone. Dr Philip Tan from the Bayside Dental Specialists understands your dilemma – he has heard his patients express these frustrations many times throughout his career as a specialist dentist. Dr Tan has developed a unique solution for those patients suffering from significant tooth loss with the innovation of his implant retained full bridge protocol - AuDentes®. Utilising leading edge technology, the highly specialised team of specialist surgeon, prosthodontist, anaesthetist and specialist digital technician AuDentes® can provide your full arch implant bridge treatment in the one hospital visit under general anaesthetic. Dr Tan was asked about the motivation to develop such a treatment. ‘’ The initial concept was born out of the desire to make the patient experience as easy and simple as possible” says Dr Tan. “In past years, immediately loaded prostheses used to take six, nine or ten months. It has become faster, for example with the All-on-4 technique, but patients still need to return for treatments. This was rather frustrating for the patients; they asked why it couldn’t be done immediately.” So how is AuDentes® different? “With AuDentes®, the patient

receives his or her permanent prosthesis at the end of the surgery, meaning that, after approximately 2 hours, the procedure is finished. This makes it simpler for the patient and reduces the cost, because by compressing the process, we remove some of the costs for dentures and additional surgery time” Dr Tan said. As a leader in advanced digital technologies Dr Tan spent several years innovating the AuDentes® technique. His revolutionary treatment takes the best of other wellknown full implant bridge procedures and improves it further offering less time in dental appointments, less pain, less recovery time along with specialised care in a hospital setting. Your treatment is personalised to your individual needs. The immediate placement of the final reinforced implant bridge while you sleep means that your smile is ready as soon as surgery is complete. You wake from general anaesthesia with the ability to smile, eat and talk naturally, after a relatively short recovery time. Your suitability for the AuDentes® procedure is dependent on several factors including your dental needs and general health. Dental implants are well accepted by most patients, however, there are some individuals with a higher risk of complications including those who have poor healing, are smokers, have uncontrolled diabetics or who are taking some cancer or osteoporosis

Pictured: Dr Philip Tan. Photo: Gary Sissons medications. These risk factors may increase the failure rate, so a thorough assessment is essential prior to embarking on any treatment of this nature. Bayside Dental Specialists offer ‘Suitability Assessments’ to those who come to the practice without a

dentist referral. You will meet one of the clinical team who will make an initial assessment of your suitability for the procedure and discuss the viability of AuDentes® treatment in your situation. Also offered is a FREE second opinion service for those who

have already seen another full implant bridge provider and who have a current CT scan, digital impressions and facial images. Contact the Bayside Dental Specialist team today on 9584 2289 to organise your screening or second opinion services!

Have the confidence to enjoy life with AuDentes The AuDentes implant bridge is a unique treatment solution for those who have no or very little teeth in their mouth.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Young Street gum tree struck by lightning Compiled by Cameron McCullough DURING the thunderstorm which took place on Wednesday the lightning was very vivid. One of the gum shade trees in Young. St, near the old garage, was struck and split in two. *** THE Frankston Brass Band will play several selections in the street tomorrow evening. *** Helping Returned Soldier Settler The working “bee” organised by the local Repatriation Committee met at Mr Peters farm on Tuesday. Cr F. H. Wells was in charge, and there was a good muster of both men and teams. Some useful clearing was done, which will prove a substantial “lift” to Returned Soldier Peters. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason announces by advertisement that an extensive sale of household furnishings will be held at their rooms, Frankston, next Tuesday afternoon. The list to be submitted contains many articles of first class quality in good demand. *** A GRAND concert and dance has been arranged for Hastings on Boxing Night. Visiting and local talent will provide the programme, and the Hastings Brass Band will be in attendance. The proceeds are in aid of the Hall funds. *** THE Manager of the National Bank (Major McPherson) has arranged to visit Frankston twice a week, commencing on the 13th inst. An announcement to this effect appears in our advertising columns. This arrangement has been made in compliance with a request from the Progress Association, and Major McPherson stated further facilities will be offered if the support accorded the bank justifies same. *** A LAD named Reg Burton had a narrow escape from drowning at Frankston last week end. He, with other boys, were swimming in the channel, near the old breakwater, when Burton appeared to get out of his depth, and was in serious difficulty when a companion named Dess, assisted by other lads, succeeded in bringing him safely to shore. *** MRS M. E. Howe, of “Cooloongatta”, Frankston, in a letter to the President of the Frankston Progress Association, voices her appreciation of the Association’s work as follows: “Mr President, May I give you credit for obtaining better facilities for posting letters. Some short time ago our morning correspondence was cleared from the Frankston Post Office at 8.55. No chance of getting postage stamps from the official place, and if one wanted to get the Sydney mail, must travel to the Station. We have now got three minutes grace, providing officials are punctual at their post. Thanks.” *** THE business at the Frankston telephone exchange has increased to an extent rendering the usual guarantee by residents to the Department unnecessary. In another column Cr W. P. Mason convenes a meeting of subscribers for Monday next at 8.30 o’clock, at the Mechanics’ Hall, to arrange for the refund of deposits at present held by the Department. *** A GENERAL meeting of the Somerville Fruit Growers’ Association will be held on Tuesday next in the local Hall when selection of Show Committee and other business will be brought forward. *** OUR LETTER BOX – To the Editor, Sir,

In reference to a paragraph in your issue of 28th ult., headed “Long Suffering Frankston”, and having special reference to the failure of the electric light at the Mechanics’ Institute, while you admit there is a probability of the Company not being responsible for it, yet apparently, we are still to blame for it. The failure of the light was caused by the blowing out of a fuse. The same thing happened on a previous occasion, which you refer to. As there is no difficulty in fuses being reached, it is quite possible someone for mischief, or for other reason, interfered with the one in the building, or it may have given out, as not infrequently happens, without any interference. As we have pointed out before, Gas and Electric Companies are not responsible for fittings beyond the meters. The fact that the gas mantles, as you report, were also missing, is not a responsibility of our officers, who are constantly giving gratuitous attention to the lighting of the Mechanics’. Owing to a number of persons representing different bodies, committees &c. using the rooms it is a very difficult matter to keep proper control over the effective lighting of the building. All we ask is a “fair deal” which we do not appear to be receiving lately. Yours faithfully, JOHN DITCHBURN, Managing Director. (Judging from the above we are inclined to the opinion that Mr Ditchburn is not fully aware of the really poor service afforded to Frankston.— Ed.) *** ANOTHER of the enjoyable social organised by the Frankston “Welcome Home” Committee in honour of our returned boys took place in the Mechanics’ Hall on Friday night. The attendance as usual, was large, and an additional attraction to the programme was offered in the presence of Miss Lily Butler (the mother of Blighty), who received a most cordial welcome. Miss Butler delivered an interesting address, in which she described her work in Paris during the war on behalf of our soldiers. She also referred to the splendid work done on behalf of Australia at the Peace Conference, and referring to the forthcoming election, said that if Mr. Hughes and his party were to be trusted to govern the country during the critical period of the war, surely they could safeguard Australia in times of peace. Miss Butler’s address was punctuated by hearty applause. Cr W. J. Oates, who presided over the gathering, thanked Miss Butler for her address. He then called on the guests of the evening to step on to the platform. As the boys present mounted the platform they were heartily cheered. Rev. E. Tonkin gave the address of welcome, in which he paid a glowing tribute to the men who had gone forth to fight for right and justice. He hoped that as a result of their sacrifices a new world would be born, in which military tyranny, as a fostered in Germany, would never raise its head again. (Cheers.) Private Cowan spoke in response, and referred to the great pleasure the home coming gave to the soldier. He made graceful reference to Miss Butler and in substantiating that lady’s reference to the Australian and his love for “tall” stories, said that he heard that the people of London intended erecting a statue to the only “digger” who did not claim to own a sheep station. (Laughter.) Mr. Mark Brody, on behalf of the Fathers of Soldiers’ Association, thanked the “Welcome Home” Committee for the splendid work done in entertaining the boys. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 6 December 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

On the ‘Recorder’: the Devil’s Piccolo By Stuart McCullough I DON’T know how it happened. I must have slipped through the net, somehow, without ever meaning too. It makes me feel as though I might be missing something; that there is a space in my soul that simply cannot be filled. For reasons that are unclear to me, I managed to make the perilous journey into adulthood without ever having learned how to play the recorder. I know. How could this have happened? Omissions of this magnitude are usually the fate of those raised in the jungle by wolves and not someone who experienced a comfortable middle class existence growing up in Tyabb. It prompts the question – what else did I miss? Frankly, it’s a miracle that I know how to tie my own shoelaces or can button my shirts without assistance. The recorder is a brutal instrument. In its favour; it is both relatively inexpensive, at least when compared to something like a grand piano, and extremely portable which, again, is an accusation that has never been leveled at said piano. It’s also close to indestructible. Kind of like the Keith Richards of musical instruments. You can drop it, kick it and throw it without putting a dent in it. Incidentally, the sound made by a recorder is such that dropping, kicking and throwing it often seems like a pretty good idea. Let’s be honest – if Satan were to invent a musical instrument, it would probably be the recorder. It’s prone to squeaking like a pubescent teenage boy’s voice and, in that sense, can

never fully be trusted. You never quite know when it’s going to fail you until it does. Bleep, bleep, bleep, SQUARK! It is a sound that never fails to put your nerves on edge. Much like running fingernails – if those fingernails belonged to Wolverine – down a gigantic blackboard, there is something about the recorder the reaches into your soul and pokes

it with a stick. I can’t say why, but learning how to play the recorder was once an unavoidable part of the educational experience. I don’t know which sadist decided that the best way to inoculate children anyone within earshot against wanting to be a musician was to make them learn how to play the recorder, but their evil genius worked

its magic on generations of school children. I’m sure that there are lots of complex theories on how best to educate a child. I am almost certain that none of those theories centres around the recorder. The recorder – when on its own makes one of the most confronting sounds in all the world. The only way to make it worse is to gather them en masse, like a heard of killer bees or a pack of rampaging wildebeest. The results are, frankly, a terrifying assault on the senses. Concerts are to be endured rather than enjoyed. Despite its ubiquity, I managed to avoid it. I’m not sure quite how I did so especially since my siblings seem to all know their way around the instrument. In fact, some of them were so smitten with the thing that they acquired different types of recorder, such as the bass recorder (the connoisseurs’ choice) and the sopranino, the sound of which can cause birds to fall from the sky). I could hear them rehearsing at different points in the house. At times, I felt surrounded. Most instruments have a champion. A genius that defines what is possible. The trumpet had Miles Davis, the guitar had Jimi Hendrix and the lagerphone was transformed by the mercurial brilliance of Eugene Stenchfoot who wrote an entire symphonic work for what, in reality, is little more than bottlecaps on a stick. It makes me wonder – who is the Miles Davis of the recorder? Could it be me? Perhaps the real question is this: is it too late for me? Having missed out

as a child, should I now learn the recorder as an adult? I not sure what the options are for a mature age recorder student. Will I be forced to attend a class along with a bunch of seven year olds? Being the only person over six feet tall could well make me feel self-conscious. Besides, my musical tastes are likely to be a little different to those of my classmates. They’ll be begging for ‘Greensleeves’ while I’ll be pushing for ‘Paranoid Android’ by Radiohead. Musical differences will be inevitable. Maybe it was because I played piano that I was excused from having to learn the recorder. It just happened. I don’t know where I was when everyone else was bleeping, squawking and puffing their way through ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb’. Probably hiding under my desk with my hands over my ears. It’s odd that despite almost everyone being forced to learn the recorder as a child, few adults ultimately decide to turn pro. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever met a professional recorder player. That’s quite an attrition rate. Earlier this week, my nephew and niece treated me to a recital while we were on the phone. The results were full of enthusiasm, albeit a little inaccurate. But they were keen. And perhaps that’s the point. That music is not a sedentary experience, but something that can inspire, sooth, comfort or – most probably – infuriate. Maybe I should takes some lessons. SQUARK! stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Middle order mayhem: Mt Martha were crusing at 1/40 when a collapse saw them 6/53. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Long Island duo pile on the runs, Mt Martha suffer a collapse, Skye have shocker By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

PINES have secured a trouble free victory over Pearcedale in the first day of their two day battle. Pearcedale were sent in to bat first, and struggled badly. Their top order collapsed, and from 4/20 they never recovered. Pearcedale ended up all out for 85 runs. Pines came in and quickly chased that down, declaring at 0/95 off 21 overs to give them a chance at grabbing an outright win this weekend. Pearcedale will restart at 1/6 on day two. Long Island have set a mammoth target for Somerville to chase down in the first day of their matchup. Openers Nick Jewell and Aiden Mckenna were electric for Long Island. They put together an opening partnership of 178 runs. Mckenna scored 91 before being dismissed, and Jewell got to 97. Long Island finished at 3/296 at stumps, leaving Somerville a daunting task. At Bruce Park, Heatherhill and Moorooduc had a tightly contested first day. Moorooduc came in to bat first and

had some troubles, eventually bowled out for 149 off just 47 overs. Heatherhill weren’t too impressive with the bat either, and ended the day at 5/88. Main Ridge set Red Hill a target of 230 to chase down at Ditterich Reserve.

DISTRICT

A CENTURY from Joel Malcolm has helped Delacombe Park to a good total in the first day of proceedings in their match against Hastings. Malcolm came in at number five and scored 127 not out, his best ever score for his club. He scored 11 boundaries during the impressive innings. Opener Jonathan Guthrie also contributed, scoring 63 runs. Delacombe Park managed to score 258 runs before stumps was called to end the day. At Ferrero Reserve, Mt Martha and Seaford Tigers both struggled to score in the first day of their clash. The Tigers won the toss and chose to bat first but it wasn’t a decision that paid off. Their best scoring batsman put just 34 runs on the board, and they were bowled out for 92 after 48 overs. In pole position to claim a win, Mt Martha would have felt comfortable at 1/40. From there, a stunning middle

order collapse saw them fall to 6/53 before the end of the day. Mt Martha need 40 runs with 4 wickets in hand, and the clash looks poised to go down to the wire if they can’t improve. Carrum set Crib Point a big target to chase at Cyril Fox Reserve, setting a score of 257 in their first innings. Daniel Polson was Carrum’s best, scoring an impressive 83. Crib Point came in to bat for 5 overs before stumps, and finished at 1/6. Dromana had a good day against Rosebud, batting first and scoring 264 before stumps.

SUB DISTRICT

CARRUM Downs have thrashed Skye to secure a win on day one of their two day clash. Skye were sent in to bat first, and were completely cleaned up. They ended up all out for a paltry 37 off 19 overs. Michael Flahive only bowled five overs, but was brilliant. He ended up with figures of 5/3. Carrum Downs had no trouble chasing that down, and declared after 37 overs at 7/181. Skye struggled in their second in-

nings too and will restart on day two at 5/66, in grave danger of falling to an outright loss. Travelling to take on Frankston YCW, Tyabb had a difficult day on Saturday. They were bowled out for 105 runs. Opener Michael Edwards scored 41 for Tyabb in a decent showing, but he got no backup from his teammates. The Stonecats came in to bat 18 overs before stumps, and finished in a good position at 1/33. Tootgarook are in pole position for a win after a good showing on day one against Ballam Park. Ballam Park were dismissed for only 112. Things were going well for them at 2/74, but quickly derailed. They lost their last six wickets for just 11 runs. Tootgarook finished the day at 0/45, looking likely to secure a win on day two. Rye fell from 2/96 to all out for 151 against Boneo. Rye’s task of defending their total was made more difficult by their collapse. Boneo will start on day two from 0/26. Seaford set a massive total of 307 in their first innings against Balnarring.

PROVINCIAL

SORRENTO have defeated Baden Powell on day one at home at David Macfarlane Reserve. Baden Powell were poor with bat in hand, scoring just 71 before being bowled out after only 29 overs. Jake Wood was brilliant for Sorrento with the ball. He posted figures of 8/26 off his 15 overs to decimate Baden Powell. Sorrento scored 127 to claim victory. On day two Baden Powell will start from 2/11. At Lloyd Park, Matt Foon scored a brilliant century to put his Mornington side in a good position against Langwarrin. Mornington ended the day at 7/219 off their 80 overs. Peninsula OB also had a good day on Saturday, putting 234 on the board before being bowled out. It was an excellent team performance for the Old Boys. None of their batsmen scored a half century, but seven of them scored more than 20. At Emil Madsen Reserve, Flinders went in to bat first and scored 125 off 76 overs before being sent packing. Mt Eliza restart on day two at home from 0/7.

Fijian five for Frankston Pines SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FIVE Fijian internationals could be joining Frankston Pines next season. Pines recently announced a partnership with the Victorian Multicultural Sports Association, a Fijian community group, and VMSA president Victor Kumar was quoted in a recent Fiji Times story announcing that the five players would be heading to Monterey Reserve. Kumar was elected vice-president of Pines at the club’s recent week’s AGM. The players are Ba midfielder Kishan Sami, Nasinu goalkeeper Alzaar Alam, Nasinu midfielder Savenaca Baledrokadroka, Lautoka central defender Muni Shivam Naidu and Nadi striker Tito Vodowaqa. They have all represented Fiji at under-19 and under-23 levels and the move to Pines is seen as a pathway to being offered contracts with clubs in higher leagues. This pathway was made possible by an initiative of Fiji prime minister Frank Bainimarama during his visit to Australia last month and has the backing of Football Victoria and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. “This initiative is strongly backed by DFAT in making travel arrangements for the players,” Kumar said. “I would like to thank the Australian government for their support towards making these players’ dreams come true.” Both Sami and Baledrokadroka have captained Fiji’s under-23s and 20-year-old Baledrokadroka has made seven appearances for the full national team. Pines senior coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor welcomed the initiative. “There are some very talented players mentioned and if they all come over it will give us plenty of depth in the squad,” Taylor said. “I believe that a memorandum of understanding is in place between Australia and Fiji regarding a sporting exchange program and these players would fall into that category.” Taylor is referring to Pacific Sports Partnerships, a $39 million federal government program for developing sport among Pacific communities. The Pines gaffer was in charge of an 18-player squad, the Victoria All Stars, which flew to Auckland last Wednesday to compete in the 2019 Pacific Cup. The VMSA arranged an entry for the Victorian squad which was bolstered by the inclusion of guest players CJ

Hodgson, Travis Ernsdoerfer and Cedric Benza (Frankston Pines), Marcus Collier (Skye United), Andy Stubley (Box Hill United) and James Burgess (Springvale White Eagles). Other squad members came from Victoria, NSW and Queensland and they had their first training session the morning after arriving in Auckland. Hodgson captained the squad which competed in Pool A of the tournament alongside Labasa, Nadi, Northshore All Stars and NZFFI All Stars. The Vic squad failed to reach the semi-finals in what proved to be a high standard tournament with other sides featuring NPL players from NSW and Queensland and overseas visa players. In NPL2 news Langwarrin only has a handful of spots available in its senior squad for the 2020 season. As things stand the squad is Fraser Maclaren, Colby Jones, Jamie Cumming, Luke Burgess, Alex Van Heerwarden, Jaiden Madafferi, Luke Goulding, Dylan Kilner, Lucas Portelli, Boris Ovcin, Brandon Jansz, Wayne Wallace, Callum Goulding, Damir Stoilovic, George Howard, John Maclean and Delarno Pharoe. A number of triallists continue to train with the squad and senior coach Scott Miller confirmed last week that he had arranged a friendly against

keen to join new NPL3 outfit Doveton. Peninsula Strikers and ex-Pines midfielder Jordan “Kaka” Avraham is believed to be on Mornington’s radar despite trialling at Lawton Park. Last Friday Mornington announced that Jason Symonds had been appointed head coach of the reserves, with Steve Riley assistant coach and Paul Nott team manager. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers have locked in four pre-season games: v Endeavour United, Centenary Park, Saturday 18 January, 1pm and 3pm; v. Frankston Pines, Monterey Reserve, Thursday 23 January, 7.15pm; v. Mazenod Victory, Mazenod College, Saturday 15 February, 1pm and 3pm; and v. South Springvale, Centenary Park, Saturday 29 February, 1pm and 3pm. In State 4 news there’s been plenty of activity at both Seaford United and Somerville Eagles. Seaford agreed terms with experienced midfielder Scott Webster last week. “They’re ambitious about next season and I’m hoping for promotion,” Webster said. He has been with Frankston Pines, Oakleigh Cannons, Morwell Pegasus, Casey Comets, Mornington and Doveton. Webster is one of five new players Seaford has targeted and veteran

Melbourne Victory’s NPL squad at Lawton Park on Saturday 14 December at 11am. A Christmas barbeque will be held after the match for players and supporters. In State 1 news Wayne “Buzza” Gordon has returned to Dallas Brooks Park after a stint with Doveton. Mornington had been talking to the veteran striker throughout the back half of last season and agreed terms with him last week. “He’s a winner and I’ve always had a good relationship with him,” Mornington senior coach Adam Jamieson said. “He left on good terms when he went to Doveton and we’re hoping that he can come in and teach some of the kids here.” A number of younger players have been training with Mornington and have been impressive. Strikers youngster Matt Harrington trained at Dallas Brooks Park a fortnight back and caught the eye. “He did really, really well and he looked like he enjoyed himself,” Jamieson said. “We’ve made no secret of the fact that we want to sign him.” One teenager who won’t be signing is Langy striker Keegan Guy who is

goalkeeper Robbie Acs is firmly in its sights. Previous No 1 Anthony Madafferi has told Seaford that he is unavailable next season due to work commitments hence the keen interest in Acs who is on holiday in Port Douglas and will make a decision when he returns to Melbourne. Acs has had stints with Essendon Royals, Heidelberg United, Casey Comets, Southern Stars, Langwarrin and Mazenod Victory. Andy Lancaster is joint senior coach at Seaford with Matty Morris-Thomas. “We would like three more players who have played at a higher level, definitely a centre back, a striker and a left-sided player and we would be really happy if we could cover those positions,” Lancaster said. Morris-Thomas will again be a player-coach. At Somerville the dust still hasn’t settled after the recent resignations of senior coach Scott Morrison, assistant Stan Packer and goalkeeping coach Stuart Mitchell. A club meeting early last week was attended by a handful of first team players and there are fears that a number of players may be on the move. Of the current senior squad it’s unclear whether Daniel Hodge, Carlo Cardoso, Joel Wade, Louis Griffiths, Callum Richardson, Francis Beck and some others will stay for next season. Somerville had been interested in Blake Hicks, Beau Sharpe and Chris Parry from Rosebud but the coaching upheaval may have ended any potential moves by that trio. In State 5 news Football Victoria announced last week that Mount Martha was one of five new teams granted State League status for the 2020 season. It is expected that the six-year-old club will compete in State 5 South alongside Rosebud and Aspendale Stingrays. Chris Sanderson is senior coach, Al Baldwin is reserves coach and Cheree Lane is operations manager. Melbourne Victory keeper and Southern United head coach Melissa Maizels is Mount Martha’s technical director. The club will play its home games at Civic Reserve in Dunns Road, Mornington. Last weekend the official opening of the venue took place headlined by federal member for Flinders Greg Hunt, shire councillors and Australian athletics legend Debbie Flintoff-King. The club is waiting on funding approval for new clubrooms.

Race a gift to the community

Wide, too good: Toosbuy poses for a winning photo with Mornington trainer Brett Scott and the winning connections after landing his fourth victory in 29 starts. Picture: Supplied

Toosbuy’s racing as well as ever HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou THE consistent Brett Scott-trained gelding, Toosbuy, continued his brilliant start to his preparation by scoring his fourth victory at Cranbourne on Friday 29 November. The six-year-old son of Danerich sat wide and towards the rear of the field for the entire race before unleashing a powerful finishing burst to score a comfortable one-and-three-quarter length victory over the Gary Cluning-trained Written Letter and the Lloyd Kennewell-trained Crimson Tycoon. It was a great way to close out the night for jockey, Daniel Stackhouse, who bought up a winning double having also won on the Lindsay Parktrained Zorro Macho earlier in the night. Mornington-based trainer Brett Scott was stoked to see his honest galloper continue on his solid preparation. “He’s not a spring chicken, but he just keeps giving his all,” trainer Brett Scott said. “He was going to go back and then the pace slackened, and he got trapped wide with no cover, but he was always travelling nicely and had plenty to give when Daniel asked him.”

“He has gotten a lot better mentally with age. He used to be quite a hot horse and do a lot wrong and over race, but he continues to be a great horse for our stable.” After 29 career starts and having four wins and eight placings to his name, Toosbuy seemingly looks to be going as well as he ever has heading into the New Year. The gelding has earnt $155,000 in prize money and will now likely begin to make his way towards a metro class race. Brett Scott said that any rain around will be a massive positive, as Toosbuy seems to thrive with a bit of cut in the ground. Eventually running the gelding over a mile also isn’t out of contention despite failing twice at the trip previously. “He’s had two goes at the mile and to be honest both times he’s led them up and that’s not his go so I think he can get a mile if he’s ridden right and switched off but at the moment he’s still coming up,” he said. “That was only his second run this prep, so we’ll just try to go to 1400m now and find the right race and hopefully there’s something on the horizon.” “That was a good result today, the owners are happy, and he just continues to be an honest horse.”

By Brosnan Kelly IN only its second year, two hundred and forty athletes from around Victoria - and some interstate - descended upon the Thomas Barclays Oval for the annual running of the Hastings Gift. An event organised by a local community based group, ‘Peninsula Athletics Association Incorporated’, the Gift was initiated in 2018 in an attempt to raise interest in the suburb and attract tourism to the area, as well as aiding in the continuity of the richly historic sport of Professional Athletics. The AGL Hastings Women’s Gift was run and won by emerging sprint star and local peninsula talent Kysha Praciak. The 20 year old crossed the line in the 120m main event in 14.37 seconds, holding off a fast finishing South Australian Ellie Whittingham, and training partner Sienna Fighera in the final. Kysha celebrated with family, partner and her training squad Pride Performance, coached by Matt Carter. “Crossing that line and hearing the commentator say that I had taken out the Hastings Gift

was unreal... it took a bit to sink in, but when it did I was over the moon!” In Kysha’s first year in her new squad, the 2019 Rye Gift champion and Stawell Gift semi finalist has fit in quite naturally based on her strong performance. “The whole crew at Pride Performance have been incredible to me since coming over at the start of pre season, I couldn’t be more grateful for them all, especially my coach, Matt Carter.” Still a young and developing athlete, the sky seems to be the limit for the Mount Eliza based student. I’m not too sure [of the next goal], at this point in time we’re just taking it one step at a time. We have relays this weekend which will be a lot of fun and then I’ll be having another hit out at the Warrnambool Gift the following weekend.” The Men’s Gift was run and won by Queensland emerging talent Max Mason, holding off last years runner up Fejiro Omuviwe and Rye sprinter Jasper Nettlefold.

GIFT GUIDE 2019 Volunteers to the rescue with sound boating tips MORNINGTON’S award-winning Volunteer Marine Rescue service, now entering its 37th summer of operation, offers five recreational boating safety tips: 1. Before you go out, check the weather forecast. A calm day can quickly turn ugly on the water. Keep an eye out for changing weather conditions by monitoring the forecast. Check out www.bom.gov.au 2. Always wear a lifejacket and insist your crew and guests do the same. While it is only a requirement to wear one in certain situations, the low cost of automatically inflating PFDs is cheap insurance. Remember, it’s only a lifejacket if you’re wearing it – and make sure it’s in good condition. 3. Check all safety equipment before heading out. Make sure everyone on the vessel knows where it is stored and how to operate it. 4. Always makes sure you have enough fuel – one-third for the trip out, one-third for the trip home and a third in reserve. 5. Stay with your vessel. In the event you end up in the water, ensure you and all occupants stay with the boat. It is far easier for rescue authorities to find you.

About VMR

MORNINGTON Community Bay Rescue Service, now VMR Mornington and Hastings, was formed in May 1980 when a boating accident occurred within sight of land, and police stood helpless on the cliff top watching one of the occupants trying to reach shore. By the time a boat could be located, launched and reached the overturned vessel, the swimmer had drowned.

The incident sat heavily on the shoulders of Mornington police who decided not to let it happen again. The name of the man who lost his life that day, Paul Darbyshire, was honoured when the service named its first rescue craft The Darbyshire. VMR operates three purpose-built search and rescue vessels, two at Mornington and one at Hastings. Members assist boaties and other marine users under the direction of water police. VMR’s mission is “Serving our local community in the protection of life at sea”. VMR president Col Strawbridge said the service was staffed solely by volunteers, mostly boaties and anglers living on the peninsula. “Our volunteers all love being on the water and, more importantly, helping others. They respond 24-7 and we can be on the water and underway in about 10-15 minutes,” he said. VMR is a free service, but each year needs to raise more than $67,000 for maintenance, fuel, a berth at Western Port Marina and other costs. “VMR has been fortunate to receive grants from the state government for Yamaha engines for its three vessels,” Mr Strawbridge said. “Our Hastings vessel is fitted with the most advanced FLIR camera, usually found only on police and military vessels. “FLIR, or forward looking infrared, is invaluable on night searches when people are in the water. It detects thermal heat and is a night vision camera that can ‘see’ 1.2 kilometres.” For more information about VMR, look up www.vmrmornington.com.au

Keeping boaties safe: Volunteer Marine Rescue volunteers power across Port Phillip near Mornington harbour on one of their boats. The service was founded in 1980.
